Large built up area with exhibitions, a riverside sanctuary with countless restaurants, cafes and a wide area for kids to play and run around - excellent location for families and business lunch/dinner! Surprisingly well maintained for Chinese standards.

There are no cars in the compound which makes it much more relaxed to stroll around. You get there by Subway... More

Amazingly I was there in NOvember and it felt warm) Really loved the scenery and the boats on the bay! There are so many white building and ports surround the OCT area, it was very nice to be there) Hotels, restaurants, and even entertainment districts are there, have fun exploring!

The two hotels in the area are both excellent. You can basically stay in the area for a day and you will be well entertained.

I don't know why not a lot of people know about this but it's actually a seasonal event held at Coco Beach during the Christmas and New Year... More

Place is wonderful and was really full of people on Friday evening. We had gone for dinner at 'South Beauty' after booking in advance. 'Linjiang cents' was the room. Food was really nice and presentation was excellent. I cannot name all the dishes ordered as they were all Chinese dishes, but one word describes everything-'DELICIOUS'. Food was really good to...
